"This is how grace works; it enters the soul, penetrates the heart, saturates the conscience, abides in the memory, affects the affections, gives understanding to the understanding, and imparts real life to the heart, which is the seat of life." Spurgeon

Walking with Elephants & Giraffes

"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's word is one hundred percent." Horton Hears a Who

Today was a debriefing and safari day. We saw so many beautiful animals and got to fish on an island. The best part: I am pretty sure we made life long friends from Zambia, Canada and the US. Sometimes you meet people and can't help but think "we are going to know these people for the rest of our lives, and beyond." The kids feel the same way. 

"Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend."
